jackmanfield asked: A few questions, Whats the deal with Pake, First off, how do you say it, and second, whats the scoop on the French 75, I mean, I know its alu, so It'll do what aluminium does, but good frame? Garbage? Also, Mavic Open Pros, prone to cracking like all other Mavic rims? Is there an alternative from DT or Alex?
Its pronounced pa-kay. The French 75 is nothing special for the price, there are much better alternatives.
None of us have ever had any problems with em. If you don’t trust OP’s, Ambrosio Excellights, Velocity Aero, and DT RR 415 are some excellent alternatives.
